The "ERIC Review" announces research results, publications, and new programs relevant to each issue's theme topic. This issue explores the topic of preparing young people to make the transition from school to work. The lead article by Ray D. Ryan and Susan Imel, "School-to-Work Transition: Genuine Reform or the Latest Fad?," summarizes school-to-work initiatives and introduces issues raised by proponents and critics of this movement. Karen Cicmanec and Carol Boston discuss changes in teacher roles and student outcomes brought on by school-to-work programs in their article, "School-to-Work Transition in the K-12 Classroom.""The Tech Prep Option," based on ERIC resources and written by Bettina A. Lankard, Carolyn Prager, and Frankie Santos Laanan, describes the tech-prep model which involves school-to-work linkages between high schools and community colleges to train students in technical fields. In addition, federal initiatives to support school-to-work transition are discussed. Lists of electronic resources, selected school-to-work resource organizations, and selected readings are provided. News from the ERIC system and an action plan for building a successful school-to-work program are also included. (AEF)
